Tips and substitutions

  • Brie: If you can’t find brie cheese, you can substitute with camembert. Brie has a milder taste while camembert has a slightly deeper, more earthy taste.
  • Pomegranate: You can also use cranberry sauce.
  • Pecans: You can substitute with chopped walnuts or pistachios instead.
  • Rosemary: Rosemary has a strong flavor, so you don’t need much. You can also use fresh thyme.
  • Bake the cheese straight from the fridge so that it softens instead of melting completely.
  • Serve straight from the oven for best results.

How to serve baked brie

Baked brie should be served warm straight from the oven. It can be served with toasted baguette bread or crackers of any kind. Plain crackers allow the flavor of the cheese to shine. Brie can also be served with fresh fruit, including apples, pears, or grapes.

fAQs

Do I take the rind off of brie before baking?

The sides and rind of the brie should be left on so that the cheese holds its shape while baking. You can remove the top portion if desired, but the rind is perfectly safe to eat as well.

Can I bake half a brie?

If you want to serve less, just cut the wheel of brie cheese in half before baking. Then bake as directed.

How do you reheat brie cheese?

Store leftover baked brie by wrapping the baking dish tightly in foil and storing in the fridge. Then rewarm in the oven following the original instructions.
